“We are celebrating 29 years of excellence in writing and publishing in Saskatchewan,” says SBA Executive Director Kam Teo. “Once again, we are very proud of this year’s nominees which reflect the diversity of our authors and publishers.”
To the many writers, publishers, and book lovers, the SBA will be announcing its Shortlist in April and the Winners in June, dates and times TBA. The reason for this is pandemic-related.
In pre-pandemic times, the Shortlist was announced in mid-February. We will be going Online for each announcement. We at the SBA would like to thank everyone for their patience as we look to celebrate the 29th anniversary of the Saskatchewan Book Awards. Stay tuned! Thank you for your patience!
